South Carolina football players moved out of a Columbia hotel on Thursday evening a week after NCAA officials investigated whether players received discounted rates -- or made any payments at all -- to live there for extended stays.
USC coach Steve Spurrier said school officials have asked players to move out of the Whitney Hotel and settle any outstanding bills with the hotel along Devine Street.
NCAA investigators interviewed a number of players last week about their living arrangements at the Whitney, where Spurrier and other USC coaches have stayed in the past.
Spurrier said he was aware players were living at the hotel, but "didnt know all the arrangements."
"But all of our guys are going to pay their bill and hopefully go live somewhere else," Spurrier said. "Thats what we hope happens -- that they pay their bills up and go live somewhere else. Thats about all I can say about it."
